Below is a short fishing report from a friend of mine that runs a 4 pack fishing charter boat out of Ensenada, Mexico.
Myself and friend Angel left the slip at Cruiseport Village around 6 am in search of yellowtail. The fish have been showing just outside of the Sauzal area which is 3-4 miles north of Ensenada. We trolled a blue mackerel mirro-lure and an x-rap but saw no signs of barracuda or yellows. Decision was made to work the San Miguel Reef area. The trollers went out and we worked the outer edge of the reef when the mirro-lure gets slammed. Pulled in a nice 22.5 lb yellowtail in 58.2 degree water. No other fish seen or hooked here although there were plenty of bottom fish showing on the fish finder. This was the calm before the storm, and I mean that literally, so we headed out looking for kelps along the 500 fathom curve. Found one kelp with nobody home. Water was clean and a nice 64.5 degrees. Finished off the day, in the rain, at Salsipuedes for a nice load of rockfish and one lost mystery fish on the troll outside of the Marina Coral. It was most probably a yellow or white sea bass.
